Go fast, go alone, go far, go together

Its been a while since I’ve written on the subject of relationships in general and marriage specifically.  Why? All sorts of reasons, from limiting beliefs “Have I really got anything significant to say?” to a feeling close to despair when I see dear friends struggling and “stuck” in their disconnection.  And yet, this summer I was privileged to witness the rather emotional wedding of our youngest son to the love of his life.  As I reflect on their tear-filled vows and contemplate their heartfelt commitment to one another, I conclude that we must offer more to one another in the way of phronesis – practical applied wisdom that makes the “ever after” part of the wedding vows, well, happy! And that’s where you come in, I’d love to hear your stories and experiences of how you have maintained and grown your marriages.  What have been your challenges and how have you overcome them?   What advice would you offer to a young couple just starting out?  And if you are that young couple just starting out, what have you got to teach the rest of us?  I love the phrase “To go fast, go alone, to go far, go together”. I believe that we all have something to contribute to the conversation, so let’s go far, together.  You can email me, text me or Facebook message me. I am keen to hear your stories, I will respect your anonymity  but  share your  wisdom and celebrate the hope and practical help that your stories will bring.  Going fast is over-rated; going far is my deepest hope for my own marriage and yours and for all the other young couples saying “I do” and “I will” in this generation and in the generations to come.
